You must not have been paying attention to the fedora-test-list.

The thinking goes (and someone from RH correct me if I'm wrong) is that
anaconda is the wrong place to be doing package selection.  Eventually,
FC should just get enough of a system up and running for the users to be
able to select/install packages from a nice, X-enabled FirstBoot situation.
